    No Mr. Trump, the Ruling Makes Us Look Strong

    America is strong, and the Constitution cannot be usurped by an ignorant racist buffoon like yourself and your advisors. You make America weak by attacking our courts, this court ruling shows our strength. You would seek to illicitly project your weakness as national weakness. That is a contemptible fabrication.

    What this nation stands for cannot be torn down by your "travel bans", crafted like a Stalinist a show trial, to appease your xenophobic disciples. America does not categorize people into religious or ethnic collectives, it recognizes the human rights and worth of individuals.

    The framers of the Constitution knew the mayhem and wars that mixing government with religion had fostered for centuries in Europe, so they added this to as the First Amendment to the Constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

    We, a nation built by immigrants, people who came from all over the world, we are not afraid of immigrants, vetted refugees or "their babies". We will not tolerate you using a class of people to denigrate in your ethno-centric political circus to divide us, with lies that you are "protecting us from "peril".

    Your ideology to ignore and disparage the courts and the Constitution you have sworn to protect, are "the clear danger." Until and if the courts clear your high handed and ill founded use of power stop the unpresidential whining.

    We the people who oppose your baseless unnecessary edicts, and our courts have ruled to block them pending hearings. Respect those facts .  A lying authoritarian fear and hate stoking demagogue may gain office here, but will meet opposition, get used to it. Washington Post:

    A federal judge in Hawaii on Wednesday issued a sweeping freeze of President Trump’s new executive order, hours before it would have temporarily barred the issuance of new visas to citizens of six Muslim-majority countries and suspended the admission of new refugees.

    In a blistering, 43-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson pointed to Trump’s own comments and those of his close advisers as evidence that his order was meant to discriminate against Muslims and declared there was a “strong likelihood of success” those suing would prove the directive violated the Constitution....(The judge) lambasted the government, in particular, for asserting that because the ban did not apply to all Muslims in the world, it could not be construed as discriminating against Muslims. The illogic of the Government’s contentions is palpable,” Watson wrote. “The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed."
